Flow

There is something So Beautiful about how it all Flows:
Winter: Dormant. Quiet. Not much in Bloom, except the Ever-Present EverGreens Reminding us of Life’s Presence even in the midst of the most barren season…
Reminding us of Invincible Summer…
How it dovetails into Messy March: A time of SnowStorms & Mistakes,
A Time for Creative Risk!
A Time for Falling on one’s Face and Celebrating the Effort!
And Yesterday, the Last Day of Messy March, 2018, Leads us right into Easter Sunday!

REBIRTH

IMG_4506Easter Morning.
Another one of those “Religious” Holidays
So I am nervous about saying, “Happy Easter!”
Because if someone belongs to a religion that doesn’t celebrate
Or associates Christianity with the ideology of TED CRUZ or other neo-cons,
They might be offended.
But, like most Holidays from YOM KIPPUR to DIWALI to CHRISTMAS…
To me, it’s an Invitation!
Welcome!
Come Celebrate!
HAPPY EASTER!

REBIRTH!
It can mean So Many Things.

HAPPY EASTER!

IMG_4539To the Lovely People with whom I had EASTER DINNER,

Thank You!
The Lamb was So Delicious!
The Asparagus So Green and Tender!
The Potatoes roasted to perfection!
…All served on Royal Doulton China, no less!

There was that moment in the middle of the meal when the Hostess, apropos of Nothing, blurted out, “UH! And isn’t it Terrible what is Going on in Indiana! How about That!”
Of course, I’ve been hearing that all week long, so it seemed topical.
That is until the part I have not heard before amidst my social circles…
“Those poor people having their Religious Freedom Attacked!”
“And Those Corporations pulling out! And trying to pull the BasketBall away! It’s such an Assault!”
“The headline in the paper read, ‘Will Not Serve Gays!’ and it wasn’t even True! They didn’t say that they wouldn’t serve Gays! They just said that they wouldn’t cater their Wedding!”
The thick rumble of “DAMN that Liberal Media!” was palpable in the room.
I summon my Inner JON STEWART! (more…)
